Lowers Risk of Diabetes

Consuming caffeine is a cost-effective way to lower your risk of diabetes. Studies show that caffeine can significantly reduce the development of high blood sugar levels:
1. Consumption of coffee on a daily basis was associated with a significant reduction in type 2 diabetes risk. [131-151]
2. A study found that the anti-diabetic effect of coffee can be attributed to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. [152-153]
3. In men and women with normal glucose tolerance, a high level of coffee consumption was associated with a reduced risk of deterioration of blood sugar metabolism. [154]
4. In younger and middle-aged women, moderate consumption of both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee (one cup per day) lowered the risk of type 2 diabetes. [155]
5. A study found that participants who drank 4 to 6 cups and more than 6 to 7 cups of coffee per day had a lower risk of type 2 diabetes compared with those who drank less than 2 cups per day. [156]
6. Studies found that higher habitual coffee consumption was associated with higher insulin sensitivity (body’s response to the effects of insulin) and a lower risk for type 2 diabetes. [157-158]
7. In women with diabetes, caffeine showed a dose-dependent protective effect. [159]
8. A study found that long-term (2–16 weeks) coffee consumption improved blood sugar metabolism. [160]
9. In sedentary subjects with normal and high blood sugar levels, caffeine improved the rate of glucose uptake. [161]
10. A study found that caffeine is superior than placebo at reducing blood sugar levels. [162]
11. In middle-aged Japanese men, consumption of 5 cups of coffee or more per day inhibited postprandial hyperglycemia. [163]
12. A study found that higher consumption of both boiled and other types of coffee at the age of 40-45 years was associated with lower risk of being prescribed with oral antidiabetic drugs 5-20 years later. [164]
13. In healthy volunteers, the addition of enriched instant coffee in the diet appears to have a significant effect on the absorption and utilization of blood sugar. [165]
14. In rats, combined long-term caffeine intake and exercise prevented the development of diabetic nephropathy (kidney damage associated with diabetes). [166]
15. In rats, caffeine intake reversed aging-induced insulin resistance. [167]
